The Houston Texans have a lot of room to improve as they enter their second game of the regular season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars will be squaring off in NRG Stadium to not only compete for their first win of the season but also within the AFC South division. Here are a few factors that will not only determine the outcome of the game but will be entertaining to follow as the game develops.
The Texans are coming from a thrilling yet disappointing defeat against the New Orleans Saints on the road and are hoping to right the ship in week two. The Texans were down by six points with less than a minute to go in the fourth quarter and it took only 13 seconds for quarterback Deshaun Watson to take the offense down the field for a 37-yard touchdown to wide receiver Kenny Stills for what was a 28-27 lead over the Saints with 37 seconds remaining.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees drove the offense to Texans territory to put their special teams in field goal range for a 58-yard field with two seconds remaining. Will Lutz made an impressive kick with the time expiring to send the Texans home winless, but also with a lot of takeaways that they can improve in their next game against the Jaguars.
Texans have the opportunity to not only turn the next page against the Jaguars but have the shot to work on the mistakes that turned a late lead to a defeat against the Saints.
